The Grand Golden Sunflower Duchy of Stollberg-Stolberg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Daniel von Gerk zu Stollberg-Stolberg with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 2.078 billion Stollberg-Stolbergians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stollberg. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Stollberg-Stolbergian economy, worth 328 trillion Goldweilers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,244 Goldweilers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, and nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stollberg-Stolberg's national animal is the Lovebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Bergisch Christianity.

Stollberg-Stolberg is ranked 4,346th in the world and 101st in the Pacific for Best Weather, with 328 Meters Of Sunlight.
